LOW STOCK LEVEL
Après Ski Original Soundtrack
"Almost 40 years after the first release of the cult quebecois sexploitation movie Après Ski by director Roger Cardinal, Pluton Records are proud to announce the release of a limited 500 copies reissue of its mythical sound track. Holy grail and masterpiece of Quebec funk, this original score is renown and sought after worldwide for its groovy and jazzy legendary B-side, loaded with drum breaks and warm horns. In 2010, Pluton Records reveal the name of the genius who composed and performed this killer record: John Ranger and his band, Illustration. Since the original release of this record in 1971, the identity of the real composer and cast of the funky side of Après Ski was a total mystery. Jacques Crevier and his ensemble were falsely credited as the band that played these songs. Pluton Records are happy to give this credit back to Illustration, a band formed of Quebecers, Ontarians and Americans, led by John Ranger's Hammond B3 organ. This cultural melting pot included the perfect ingredients to create a tasty gumbo, turned into a classic soundtrack, recorded in Montreal in1970. In order to please the collectors out there, Pluton have included a previously unreleased tune, found on the original master tracks brought out of the attic to be remastered. Pluton are also adding more sounds from the movie, including a psychedelic freak out titled Le cauchemar électronique de Philippe, string backgrounds from the OST and some funny French dialogs from the movie, including a comedy bit by Rene Angelil, Celine Dion's famous husband and manager. Pluton are also pleased to reissue the pop gems found on the A side of the record, including the movie's theme Après Ski, sung by the young and beautiful star of the movie Celine Lomez, and another tune sung by a co-star, Mariette Levesque, titled Dors avec moi, whose music sounds like Serge Gainsbourg's sexiest moments."
